    Cool Connect to server from the web?

    Hi guys,

    I would like the staff at my work to be able to access a certain server share from home over the web. I have spoken to a couple other people who advised a SSL VPN, I'm a little unsure about the whole procedure and how to implement this. Any help would be great!

    Thanks
    Cooka

    home access plus best bet is on here.

    another option is direct access but ive yet to get this to work (suspect due to using ip's rather than domains)

    We have a VPN straight into the network and then just use RDP or VNC into servers, or if VPN isnt working we use Team Viewer.

    Logmein Hamachi is also another good free tool. Or Remote Desktop Web Services.

    We use pfSense for our VPN into the network, using OpenVPN

    We use 3 bits, HAP+ (since I make it it would be silly not to), NPS for the SSTP VPN, and RDP (RDP Gateway). All using HTTPS, so only 1 port has to be open.
